Tropical wisdom says if you suffer from thirst, take a pineapple. And if you want to enhance its flavor, just add lemon juice. That’s how the Pineapple Sour cocktail is made. This is a light, cooling drink with sweet and sour taste.
This hitch is used for attaching a rope to objects such as rings, rods, railings, posts, etc. It gained its popularity among sailors as a simple and effective knot for securing buntlines to the foot of square ships. This knot is not afraid of shaking, and tightens more with every jerk. It tends to jam and, after using it for a long time, can be difficult to untie. Good for setting up a tent.

Let’s begin a 3D drawing!
If you don't have any previous experience with this kind of picture, we suggest you start with the simplest drawings, for example, a circle.
When learning to draw in 3D, it’s best to use simple pencils with different grades of lead. If you can, acquire a special kit. Soft lead pencils make a darker and thicker line; hard lead pencils a thinner and lighter line. In addition, when drawing in 3D you must sometimes bear down harder and sometimes more lightly.
Preparatory position: lying on a back, shoulder blades strained together, we hold dumbbells, straight arms with palms facing inside, then we slowly lower dumbbells laterally and then we move them towards the center.
Stand flat on the ground or with your toes on a ledge, heels hanging off.
-Push up onto your toes as high as you can while remaining stable.
-Use a wall or object for support if needed.
-Do one set using both feet, then another set, per foot, using just one foot.
This hitch is good for thick and rough cables and very useful for tying on objects that are difficult to reach with one’s hands, such as car tow hooks. The knot doesn’t jam, but might come loose if the ends are not seized. For additional security pull the knot tight before seizing.
Put your feet slightly narrower, than shoulders width, apart. Take a barbell with pronated grip, a little wider, than shoulders. Straighten your back and thus we take the starting position of the Romanian deadlift. Bend, keeping your plate bones together, move your hips back. The maximum back deflection, including chest and cervical departments should be kept on all trajectory of the movement. The barbell moves strictly vertically, closer to your legs. Don't do any snatches in the lower point! Very important secret of this exercise: lifting the barbell is carried out not by body straightening, but by PUSHING FLOOR BY LEGS. Your back has to be bent in waist. If you can't bend your body completely without rounding your back, then don’t bend too low, or bend your legs stronger.
It is also a very compact knot making it a nice knot for small flies and various tests rate it between 85 to 100 percent of line strength, with 90% probably a safe assumption. The Davy Knot should be in every fly fisher's arsenal of knots!
If, in 1920, there had been no prohibition of alcohol in the U.S., lots of cocktails wouldn’t have been invented. One example is Long Island Iced Tea. The strong mix of vodka, gin, white rum and tequila resembled tea in color. The cocktail was a real godsend to alcohol lovers.

Make large arm circles backward 15 seconds. Then, repeat in the opposite direction (toward the front of your body) for an additional 15 seconds.
One of the most effective binding knots, the Constrictor, is rather simple to make and difficult, sometimes even impossible, to untie. It is extremely tough and can even damage or deform the bound objects. The Constrictor is generally used for semi-permanent binding.

The Twisted Dropper Loop is a variation of the dropper loop. As the dropper loop the twisted dropper loop forms a loop which is off to the side of the line. In the this variation the line is twisted before the loop is created. This stiffens the line and make it stand nicely off to the side. The twisted dropper loop can be used anytime a loop is needed in the middle of your leader.
